Here are some of the most common beliefs about skin and hair care.
If you shave with a razor, your hair will grow stronger: When we shave, we cut the hair flush with the surface, and it grows with a flat end, giving the illusion that it is thicker, but in reality, it is not.
If you eat a lot of chocolate, you will get acne: Acne is a product of hormones, genetics, and to a certain degree, food. Although diet can induce acne to some degree, but the chances are very low.
Psoriasis is contagious: Skin lesions are not contagious and are not related to poor hygiene, as in some cases it is commented. Psoriasis is a hereditary disease and should not be considered contagious.
If I do not wear makeup, I should not wash my face before going to sleep: Nightly cleansing should be done regardless of whether makeup was used during the day. Not only should makeup be removed, but also bacteria, oil, sebum, and dirt accumulated during the day.
Hairy or bearded men should not use sunscreen: Although hairy areas are less prone to sunburn, they still receive sun radiation. It isn’t easy to apply cream sunscreen to these areas, so you may opt to use a spray or gel product.
